Woodland Glen entry into Woodland Glen Complex greenspace
Woodland Glen V is the fifth building in the redevelopment of the old Cooperstown Housing Complex, now known as Woodland Glen. It was part of the on-going joint effort by the University of Kentucky and Education Realty Trust to replace the University’s on-campus housing. The facility accommodates 250 students and includes an entire floor dedicated to the building maintenance operations for the Woodland Glen complex by Education Realty Trust.
The six-story building is comprised of all private two-bedroom suites each mixed with various living / learning community spaces, meeting and study rooms, social gathering spaces, and a University classroom. It serves as the Healthcare Residential College. The residence hall also provides a community kitchen, high tech laundry facilities, and a two story entry lobby for the residents. The living environment is decorated with artwork from local Kentucky artisans scattered throughout the building lobbies and circulation spaces. The residence hall incorporates the modern technologies including wireless internet and satellite television to enhance the living experience.
The residence hall incorporates multiple social spaces with views to a large central courtyard created by the five buildings that comprise the Woodland Glen development. Bicycle racks, grassy lawns, and sunny patios provide a vibrant outdoor environment for the residents of Woodland Glen V.
Woodland Glen V is LEED® Silver Certified.
